It’s at this time every year - the time when we begin to stash away the heavy sweaters and long sleeve garments of winter in exchange for our light, lively (and revealing) summertime wardrobes - that we stop for a moment to think about our skin and what “condition” it’s in. It’s easy to “let ourselves go” a bit whilst clad in those turtlenecks. But come springtime, when we’re standing in front of the mirror holding that light, sleeveless shirt in front of ourselves...well, there’s a lot less room to “hide.” Let’s face it, we all want that youthful, radiant glow. We want to look good out there on the beach, or strolling along the summer trials, or heck, even around the office. As we start to show more skin, we want the peace-of-mind that comes with knowing we’re projecting our “best selves.”
That said, Dermatology and Skin Health offers a plethora of award-winning cosmetic practices that can help you achieve great skin this summer. Both of our locations in Dover, New Hampshire, and Peabody, Massachusetts, are set up to provide you with exemplary care utilizing state-of-the-art technologies to help you gain better, healthier skin.
Here are a few things we can help with:
We’re all self-conscious about how our skin looks, and as we age, pigmentation can shift and become “uneven.” Gaining a healthy glow from your skin (and maintaining this glow) is one of the most important things you can do. Many people seek the sun and try to “cover up” uneven patches through tanning and/or the application of products that may not be entirely safe - not only to the skin, but to our overall health. As your skin is introduced to the sun’s harmful UV rays, it produces excess melanin which can lead to pigmentation that causes patches of the skin to become unpleasantly raised and darker than the rest.
Gaining an even skin tone is desirable all-year-round, but is even further pronounced during the summer months as we wear less layers and show more skin in an effort to keep cool. Our Dermatology and Skin Health centers have a suite of lasers that offer non-invasive treatments to sort out pesky pigmentation ailments. From Cutera and Pelleve, to CO2RE and PicoWay – we’ve got the solution to solve any skin pigmentation problem you’re having. Read more about them here.
Laser Hair Removal
As the weather warms up, we inherently begin to bare more skin in an effort to stay comfortable as temperatures rise and sweat glands become more active. Daily shaving routines, as we know, can be tasking, especially to those of us with sensitive skin. Red bumps, itchiness, and general irritation can be frustrating to say the least. All this in the quest of achieving smooth skin. What are your options? Well, having permanently smooth, hair-free skin with laser hair removal is one of our most sought-out treatment options here at Dermatology and Skin Health. This cosmetic procedure removes unwanted hair across the face and body in all skin types, amongst both men and women. Check out the options here and ditch the bumps, irritation, and discomfort that comes with that disposable razor.
Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Fun fact: Did you know that your body’s skin cells are replaced every 21-40 days? It’s true. However, as you get older your cells regenerate more slowly than they once did, and you may start to notice the unwanted production of more wrinkles, fine lines, sunspots and a general dullness to your skin. Nobody wants to give up their youth, and in terms of your skin, that means preserving your radiant, youthful glow. If you’re looking to freshen up your appearance, we can help. Skin rejuvenation is non-invasive, and can boost both your skin’s health, as well as your own, internal mental health. Don’t think about aging, combat it. Our skin rejuvenation treatment will help to keep you looking as youthful as you possibly can. Read more about our process here.
There is so much more that we offer at Dermatology and Skin Health. If you’re wondering about anything to do with your body’s largest organ, allow us to be your trusted, mindful resource. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have, and would be thrilled to help gracefully guide you through one of life’s absolutes: aging.
Be the best you can be this summer. Enjoy all the BBQs, and we’ll see you at the beach!
